Bugsy Here:  I AM the calm one.  Knuckles is the not calm one.  How can you tell… ? Well you’ll find me sitting and watching him run around here and there all the time.  I mean, the boy does not know how to sit still… Therefore Knuckles is in charge of wake up calls in the morning.  Also, he’s in charge of pacing from dish to Lou until she gets the hint that it’s time to feed us. And he’s in charge of all the illegal activity and I’m the lookout.  For example, a while back we broke into the refrigerator… Lou figured she had left the door open, but she never knew for sure.

Knuckles got into the refrigerator again last night.  HH heard him.  I mean she yelled to him to come to her and he did.  What a good actor he is.  That single act of genius kept HH from getting up and going into the kitchen to see what he had been up to.  Well, after he paid respects to HH’s call, he went right back to the refrig and continued to eat the pat of butter he had found.  A little while later, when HH found the refrigerator door open, she realized it was her fault.  She hadn’t closed the lunch meat drawer, and the refrigerator consequently hadn’t closed all the way… She didn’t even scold Knuckles when she found it, cuz she knew it was her fault….

If I had know we weren’t getting in trouble, I would have gobbled up some of that food too.  Oh well…. as I said… I’m the calm one and sometimes that doesn’t pay.

Have a great day.

  2. We;d need to look at such a calming picture if we found the fridge door open and the butter gone LOL. Guys your mum is a star. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. That Knuckles is a smart one! Sometimes if you come and allay their suspicions, you get away with SO much!
